It’s Red Ribbon Week again at Mariam Boyd Elementary. Red Ribbon is an alcohol, tobacco, and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed annually in the month of October. At the Elementary School level, teachers and students focus on the dangers of using drugs and bullying prevention.
In honor of Red Ribbon Week, Mariam Boyd teachers include lessons about staying drug free, and students participate in a variety of “Spirit” days. This week, students participated in the following dress up activities:
Monday (10/21) – “Give Drugs the Boot’” Wear boots.
Tuesday (10/22) – “Too Bright for Drugs” Wear Sunglasses
Wednesday (10/23) – “Hats off to Drugs” Wear a hat.
Thursday (10/24) – “Sock it Up to Drugs” Wear crazy socks.
Friday (10/25) – “Our Glow will Never Dim for Drugs” Wear a glow stick (these will be provided at school).
All classes participated in a door decorating contest to show their support for the ideals of Red Ribbon Week and decorated doors to the theme of “Send a Message- Stay Drug Free.” As another Red Ribbon Week comes to a close, Mariam Boyd Staff and students will continue to raise support and show an awareness of the benefits of a drug free life all school year long.
